We have worked with Michael twice — once to purchase our home in Oakland in 2015, and once to sell the same home in 2021. He is easygoing and personable, and he cares about making the buying and selling process a good experience for his clients. He understands that this is not just business for his clients — he’s helping us find (or sell) our homes, so it can be a very emotional process. His approach is very much personalized to the individual clients and property. He coordinated a lot of things for us during our sale since we were remote, including helping us hire and manage a number of contractors to get the place ready for sale. He was always easy to reach to answer questions, and always kept us up-to-date on new developments. After offers came in on our house, he helped us negotiate an even better price. We would definitely recommend working with him, whether you are planning to buy or sell!
